This article brings a brief problematization of women in popular music (more specifically, in Rock), with a focus on introducing the rise of the subculture Riot Grrrl in Brazil until the development of musical and female cooperation camps called "Rock N Roll Camp For Girls ". In this country, such events exist and operate in 3 states: Paraná, São Paulo and Rio Grande do Sul, the latter being our focus, called Girls Rock Camp Porto Alegre. Throughout the text, excerpts of interviews with women involved with the subculture Riot Grrrl and Girls Rock Camp in the Latin American country will appear. Finally, we try to understand how aging and the continuity of the subculture is present in these women and how such knowledge reverberates in young girls through music. Our sample consists of 63 respondents from ten Brazilian states, from north to south, between 15 and 47 years of age.
